That’s why storylinePR is supporting the Ottawa Citizen Raise-a-Reader campaign whose goal is to increase awareness and raise money for children’s literacy programs in Ottawa. This years’ Ottawa Citizen Raise a Reader Day is scheduled for Wednesday, September 29, 2010. All funds will to be distributed to charities with family literacy programs through the Ottawa Citizen Literacy Foundation through the Community Foundation of Ottawa.
For me, I find the greatest benefit is in the parent/child reading experience itself. It comes from the cuddle, the bonding, the joy of the moment and witnessing the learning process. If you’re a parent, I’m sure you can understand that sentiment. No matter how crazy my business is, I always take time to ready to my daughter, every single day. Instilling a love of reading in a child is giving them a gift which will last a lifetime!
